Stressing students from an online perspective

BY ALLISON DONOFRIO

As students are settled into their spring classes at McKendree, I, an online student, conducted a survey before, during and after finals to see how students handled stress for the fall semester.  The survey collected data on how many hours he/she studied for finals and how they dealt with stress during finals. A total number of 14 responses were collected. 35 percent of students said they were stressed on a level of 2 for finals last semester, on a scale from 1-10 with 1 being the highest. Meaning, that 35 percent of students were very stressed for midterms and finals. It is also interesting to note that there were 2 responses who said they were hardly stressed at all for finals, with a 9 out of 10 responses.
